I've been an avid reader of the forum since I purchased property on the NW corner of Pine Island. Thank you to the guys who provide me the fix while I toil away down here to pay for my passion. Projects have prevented me from really getting started Muskie fishing on the big V. I'm taking my son Muskie fishing Labor Day weekend, and was wondering what types of structure I should look for. Also, does anyone have a name for the bay I'm in on the Pine Island side just Southeast of St. Mary's Island?

I go by your bay all the time. I've been kind of interested in all the activity but haven't driven back in to check it out. I don't know that your bay has a name so I guess you're free to give it one! As far as musky fishing, keep it simple. They are rock oriented this time of year. The rocks are nicely marked either with bouys or aluminum from my skeg. Big bay is a good place to start. Use a large, high riding black and siver bucktail like a medium or large Eagle Tail and cast to rock piles and tapering points. Look for boulders especially and don't be afraid to cast into real shallow water,as long as it's near deep water. If you get tired of a bucktail, go with a Reef Hawg, Jackpot or Awaker. There are a million lures, half of them in my boat but if you stick with those you are most of the way there. I'm going to be out over Labor Day and if I get a chance, I'll stop in. Which cabin is yours?

There are a lot of fish relating to rocks this time of year however, don't overlook the grass. I caught 2 muskies in the weeds on Sunday, while everyone else was out fishing the rockpiles. smile.gif

Bucktails still catch more muskies than any other bait, so when in doubt, throw some hair. smile.gif

Good Luck!

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
